Over at Foreign Policy I try to draw out lessons of World War I for strategy and foreign policy in Asia today: https://foreignpolicy.com/2018/11/09/world-war-is-depressing-lessons-for-asia/. Amazing how many rhymes there are between then and now, and even the dissonant notes are enlightening.
The occasion is the centennial of the armistice, which is coming up this Sunday. Last week I ventured out to Kansas City to address the centennial symposium at the National World War I Museum and Monument and spun off my remarks into a couple of articles. Part 2 coming Sunday!
